I had a birthday party yesterday at Al Mandaloun and it was one of the best parties I’ve had in years, and most expensive too …
The place is very spacious from the inside as shown above, with a stage where several artists perform throughout the night. We were seated upstairs looking over the whole place.
We arrived there around 11 pm, there were lots of parking around the place which is pretty cool. First thing we did was order dinner, I had a chicken pollard while my girlfriend had the smoked salmon platter both of which were really good. Then the show started with a lady singing Fayrouz songs followed by old Lebanese songs, then a Jazz singer, a few disco songs, an artist performing Mika songs (that was not so great), some rock opera music and more.
There’s barely a few minutes between every artist and the music is great even between the breaks. I recorded some songs and I will upload them later on this weekend.
Price-wise, the minimum charge is between 75$ and 100$, including dinner and drinks.
True, could be fun but a night there could cost you north of 300$
I was there last night! – my first time actually – also was at a friends bday party. I quite liked the mass birthday cake celebrations (makes it easier for them i guess). Also, the thought that lebanese people are becoming a little bit more sophisticated crossed my mind considering that Mandaloun is a bit of a Lebanese monument.
Seems like Music Hall is setting a trend in town? same style
It’s just a music hall replica. I prefer Music Hall Audience and ambiance, even better performances.. they even got a fake-Beyonce 😀
This one of the best palces in beirut. At least when you pay, you do get what your paying for at mandaloon. Excellent food, great ambience, outstanding staff. Better than paying $300 at white and getting nothing. Najib post is 100% accurate
U have JUST discovered the Mandaloun ya Nagib? It’s already a “has been”! 😛
This one has not been here for long. It opened not so long time ago.
Excuse moi comtesse 😛
Hehehe! Well it opened this June if my memory is correct.
The entertainment program, the decor, the food and the service is indeed great but the crowd well not really…
Hope I didn’t sound too snobbish…
3 months is not very long is it?
Ben non you did not sound snobbish even though you are lol
at least the crowd is much refined than white and the service is outstanding. I think white is a burger joint
